To Warrior Dash or Not???


Friday, June 22, 2012

For those who've never heard of a Warrior Dash, it's similar to a mud run. It's a 5k with obstacles. It looks like fun but it's intense. The training says to train for double the miles because the obstacles tires you out. I would love to sign up but I'm scared that I don't have enough upper body strength for the obstacles. No let me rephrase I know I don't have the upper body strength.

The race is on July 14 and I don't think that is enough time for me to train. I've started doing pull-ups but I do it with the assistance of a chair. I'll give myself another week of training and then I'll decide.

    They have warrior dashes here where I live and when I first learned about them, I thought it was crazy. I had an acquaintance post pics from her dash on Facebook--running through fire, mud and whatever else they could think of, while wearing a tutu. Just wild, but it looked fun.

I say show up and do what you can and then train for the next one. Drink lots of water! Good luck.

  It can't hurt to try... if you sign up and register then it gives you more incentive to keep training hard for it. If you don't make it all the way through, or if you have to stop and take a break, no biggie... you're still challenging yourself. So what if you come in last place, you still did better than if you opt out! Good luck!

    Remember there is sure to be a future Warrior Dash that will give you time to work on your upper body strength. Interestingly enough - American youth (grade school & up) lack upper body strength. I don't know why that concern isn't addressed early on in P.E. classes.

God bless!
